DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Andras Juhasz\nhosted by Tamas Hausel\nAbstract: An n-
manifold is a topological space that locally looks like n-dimensional coor
dinate space. Surprisingly\, the most difficult dimensions to understand a
re 3 and 4. Low-dimensional topology is an important area of mathematics t
hat studies manifolds in exactly these dimensions. Knots play a central r
ole in low-dimensional topology as they can be used to construct all 3- an
d 4-manifolds\, and they also appear in physics\, biology\, and chemistry.
Knot Floer homology is a powerful\, computable\, and geometrically rich
invariant of knots defined by Ozsvath-Szabo and Rasmussen in 2002. Some of
its properties are best understood via sutured Floer homology\, a general
ization to 3-manifolds with boundary that I developed. It is a fundamental
question of low-dimensional topology to understand the surfaces a knot ca
n bound in the 4-ball. In this talk\, I will explain how a knot cobordism
(a surface in 4-space connecting two knots) induces a functorial map on k
not Floer homology via sutured Floer homology\, and discuss some properti
es and applications.
